Pours with a bight yellow-gold color and a medium head of creamy, white foam. Somewhat closed aroma; light presence of hop. Slightly malty and very average in taste; low alcohol content makes this one easy to put down. Nothing much to recommend here.

OLD NOTES JAN 4, 2004 Came in a energy drink style bottle. A weak grassy, if not skunky aroma. Standard straw lager appearance. Watery mouthful. Not too much in it. Quite a dry after taste.

The head is unrobust, the body blond. It smells and tastes very watery, very mild. Shit!

Bland as all hell. Virtually no head. Watery and tasteless, this beer goes down very easy so it’s probably only good if you are a raging alcoholic. If you like tasty beer, my advice is to avoid.

Dull straw, no head, looks terrible. Smells like celery and gasoline. Maltesque palate, some plastic stuff...would ve at home in the Molson pantheon.

Aroma has hints of banana just peeking over the typical macro lager aromas of despair, which did pique my interest for a nano-second. Then down the hatch we go and the first few gulps are inoffensive and would probably be refreshing on a hot day, but by the time I get halfway into the glass, the taste of vegetable cooking oil, and oversweet metallic finish start drowning out any goodness this beer might once have had.

Bland lager which is refreshing & easy to guzzle down if it’s really cold . Little flavour of much except quite sweet . No head. Drank it from 330 ml bottle , but have had it on tap & can before. I’ve had worse, better than Rhenick from memory.

Pours gold with a small, lasting head. Nose shows hay, vegetal notes, sweet malt and cereal grains. Also some faint floral notes. Similar flavours, more hay and vegetal characters. Again, there’s a faint floral note. Body is a bit watery.
